Baby Sweater

I made this baby sweater (I haven't mailed it yet) for a friend of my oldest daughter who just had a baby boy 2 weeks ago.  It was a very easy pattern.
 I found here.
 I followed the directions except for knitting front.  I knitted both sides of the front after the split.  To me it's easier to knit both sides at once and then they are even.
Here's a photo of my knitting. You just need to attach another yarn to knit with.  I used the other end of the skein that I knitting from.  I also try to knit both sleeves at one time too.
Since this is a sweater for a new baby I chose to use an acrylic yarn so there is  no allergic reactions from yarn.  Acrylic can be thrown in the washer.  The yarn I used was Caron Simply Soft Eco.  It was nice to work with.
